Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael M. Lewis
Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

llayam, January 1, 2010

A thoroughly entertaining, humorous and persuasive tale of how creative thinkers challenged the tired dogmas of our nation's pastime. More than just a book about sports, it's a probing and telling look at how people can either be motivated by necessity to feats of intellectual ingenuity or alternatively, cling reflexively to the security of received wisdom. The author makes no bones about where his sympathies lie, yet the characters who populate the book are never presented as being two-dimensional. A great read.
